Obituary

A.C. HUMPHREY DIES
Civil War Veteran, Represented Underhill in Legislature Was Town Clerk

Underhill, Jan. 7. Hon. A.C. Humphrey, a life-long and highly respected citizen of this town, passed away very suddenly of heart disease at his home here at 4:30 o'clock Tuesday morning.

Mr. Humphrey was for many years town clerk of Underhill and represented the town in the Legislature. He has also held the office of selectman as well as various other town offices.

Mr. Humphrey was a veteran of the Civil War, serving in the First Vermont regiment, Company G, for three years and three months. At the time of his death he was commander of L.H. Bostwick Post, G.A.R., and was also a member of the Masonic order.

He was a man of sterling qualities, much beloved by every one, and will be missed by his town and State.

The survivors are a widow; two sons, B.K., a lieutenant in the navy, and Edgar S. of Underhill; one daughter, Mrs. D.F. Hackett of Boston, and eight grandchildren; also a brother, Capt. W.H. Humphrey of 64 Greene street, Burlington.

The funeral, which will be held under the auspices of the Masonic order, will be held Friday afternoon at two o'clock at the Methodist Church, the Rev. A.H. Sturges officiating with interment in Underhill Center.
